One Fayose, Many Troubles

News Introduction: 
Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, has always being in the news for one reason or the other, either for positive reason or the other way round. Since his assumption of office for a second term on the October 16, 2015, in the state, the governor has been involved in many controversies that put him in the limelight. One of such controversy is the issue of the seven People’s Democratic Party, PDP, lawmakers in the state assembly, who are being considered to be greater than nineteen All Progressives Congress, APC members, which form the majority in the house of assembly before the emergence of the governor. The issue is that how can Governor Ayo Fayose, see seven lawmakers of the PDP greater than the 19 APC lawmakers, feeling comfortable in a democracy that is practiced worldwide and using them to pass some of the government policy in which he administers as the chief executive of the state. They people suggest that this should not happen in a state in the federal that prides itself as the “fountain of knowledge” where you can find a professor or two in every household in Ekiti State. A fallout of this drama is the impeachment of the speaker of the state house of assembly, Dr. Adewale Omirin, by the “PDP 7” led by Dele Olugbemi, and the “APC 19”, threatened to walk out of the assembly when they discovered that the propaganda of the ruling PDP is affecting their efforts to even return to the assembly for legislative business before the APC 19 decided to seek refuge at the court of law. Also, All Progressives Congres, APC, has raised the alarm over alleged plan by the leaders of the People’s Democratic Party ‎ to attack APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, in the state. The State Publicity Secretary of the party at ‎a press conference in Ado-Ekiti on penultimate Tuesday said “it was necessary to call the attention of Nigerians and the world to the potential danger posed by Governor Ayodele Fayose to free and fair presidential elections and peaceful coexistence among Nigerians”. According to him, Fayose’s desperation to ensure victory for President Goodluck Jonathan by all means and at all costs in Ekiti State had taken a new dimension. Olatubosun said the focus of PDP leaders for victory in Ekiti State was through violence‎ and killings, saying “Fayose openly wished Buhari dead in some paid advertorial recently. This was coming after the governor had reportedly been boasting around that he had Aso Rock support in whatever he would do to ensure victory for President Jonathan” The APC spokesman noted that this was a flagrant action to undermine the peace pact brokered between party leaders by former United Nations Secretary General, Dr Kofi Annan, and other world leaders. Olatubosun added that all security breaches in the state had been communicated to the National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd). APC however alleged that its they party members are being attacked through the instrumentality of the state government saying the days of one week, one trouble are back in the state. “The attacks include that on Dr. Adewale Omirin, Peter Agidi Folorunso Ogundele, Sunday Adu Clement, Yomi Daramola, Deputy Speaker Tunji Orisalade, all members of Ekiti Assembly, and recent attack on Hon Ife Arowosoge’s home. According to them, “Fayose said publicly that Jonathan is too soft and should leave him to prosecute his election to victory through all means and unfortunately, ‎the Presidency has been silent on all these.‎” Olatubosun said the presidential election is governed by federal law, stressing the law that allows Jonathan to paste his posters should also allow Buhari to paste his own posters without attacking APC members. APC urged security agents to hold Fayose responsible if any harm that befalls Buhari in Ekiti State. But, Governor Fayose, who reacted to certain negative comments that trailed the advertorial he caused to be published on the front pages of some newspapers, said “ he has no apology over the advertorial as it contained facts. Fayose , who said this through his Chief Press Secretary, CPS, Mr. Idowu Adelusi in Ado Ekiti on penultimate Tuesday said that the truth can never be covered indefinitely, insisting that the All Progressive Congress , APC, Presidential Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, was too old and sick to be president of this country. The Governor said that the advertorial was his personal opinion as citizen of this country and not opinion of the PDP and that he stand by it. He said: ”I wish to refer to the late President Umaru Musa Yar’ Adua who former President Olusegun Obasanjo claimed was hale and hearty to lead this country and subsequently took ill and died. I must assure all those who have expressed genuine concerns, unlike the APC that is playing cheap politics over the issue -that my intention is not a death wish to General Buhari but a factual position that APC is covering. “My consideration for the advertorial in the midst of alleged ill-health of the late president is the need for the nation not to forget the crisis we were thrown into in 2010 but saved by the National Assembly which had to invoked the Doctrine of Necessity after protests by the Save Nigeria Group, SNG, “It is in defence of fairness that I called attention to the potential crisis we may face God forbid that the health of the general becomes a hindrance if he was president and his Vice who is from the South West would have to step into the saddle not too long after Obasanjo eight years in office. “ I wish to draw attention to the lead story in the Sunday Tribune of January 18, 2015,‎entitled, “ Buhari’s planned visit to US causes furore.” “The story revealed that arrangement had been concluded to fly Buhari to US for a medical checkup. That Buhari has been stressed from effects of the rigours of presidential campaigns across the country and he is definitely in need of medical attention, adding that age was a factor as rigours of the campaign was‎ getting at him”. Fayose therefore advised Buhari to be sincere with himself and step down for a younger and more vibrant person again, I say it that Buhari is too old and spent to lead Nigeria. The Governor added, “The health of all of us who have stepped into the leadership space is nothing personal to us anymore as it has implications on the polity.” Fayose said that he was certain that time will vindicate him, calling on all Nigerians to vote en mass for the vibrant and energetic President Jonathan to avoid a repeat of history. It is also a fact that some individuals have condemned the opinion of the Governor on General Buhari, in support of his party, his party has also dissociate itself from the advertorial saying it is his personal opinion and not the one coming from the party. Meanwhile, the general view is that the governor should tread softly and not heat up the polity, what the people need now is the kind of democracy that provides for good jobs for the unemployed, qualitative education for the people from primary to the university level, stable economy for individual states in the federation and not attacks on personalities. ... - By Raphael Ogbonnaiye

Most of those who parade themselves in  APC, if carefully traced, could be known to have been members of the PDP who felt aggrieved for one thing or the other and decided to dump the party for APC.
